Etymology & Historical Origin - Jazlyn

Jazlyn is a modern American name invented by using the word “jazz” and further combining it with the popular suffix “-lyn(n)”. Jazz is a popular music genre which originated among Blacks in New Orleans, Louisiana in the late 1800s. It was inspired by and drew on ragtime, church gospel, spiritual songs, West African rhythms and white people harmonies. Jazz is defined by its syncopation and improvisation. Lynn comes from a Welsh word meaning ‘lake’. So even if Jazlyn is an invented name (chiefly used within the African-American community), we are giving it an informal meaning of ‘Jazz Lake’.

Popularity of the Name Jazlyn

Jazlyn is a name invented in the United States (first appearing on the female naming charts in 1996); its usage is pretty much restricted to America as well. Furthermore, Jazlyn is most popular among African-Americans. Just like the popular Arabic name Jasmine turned into Jazmine, some parents like to “jazz” up names with the “Jaz-“ prefix. And who can blame them? Jazz is an important musical contribution made by African-Americans to the rest of the world. Even if you’re not a jazz fan, the word just musters up a sense of freedom and lack of boundaries. Of innovation and beauty.
